NBA player pleads guilty to 'super extreme' drunk driving, which is a real thing in Arizona

P.J. Tucker of the Phoenix Suns will go to jail for three days, and serve under house arrest for another 11 after pleading guilty to "super extreme" DUI.  Tucker was arrested May 10 in Scottsdale, Arizona, apparently with a blood alcohol level of .22.

Here's what I've discovered about the state of Arizona's different levels of DUI; it has "regular" (.08-.149 BAC), "extreme" (.15 and up) and super "extreme" (.2 and higher).

ESPN's legal analyst Lester Munson called it "a new idea in American law, but it's one of these ideas that you can already see is going to spread to the other states."

On my "making the roads a safer place" scoreboard, that's Arizona 1, Mexico 0.
